Vice President Debate

I watched the debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden at 37,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean and a day late.

I think Biden was the clear winner, though Palin didn’t do as bad as was expected considering her interview performances. She did repeat a lot of talking points, but wasn’t half-bad.

The debate’s most prominent aspect was how all the answers were completely unresponsive to the questions asked. Usually there is some effort by the candidates to go off-topic but this debate was really bad in that regard.

One thing that I didn’t understand at all was Palin’s statement that:

We have to fight for our freedoms, also, economic and our national security freedoms.

What exactly are national security freedoms?

You can watch the VP debate online or read the transcript.

Being jetlagged, I still haven’t watched the second Obama-McCain debate.

  1. “One thing that I didn’t understand at all was Palin’s statement that…”

    You’re better than me. I don’t understand anything she says lol. 😉

  2. Does anyone ever understand what Palin says? She’s spouting nonsense half the time any ways.

    Anyone else but her use this phrase too?

  3. wayfarer: Palin does use a lot of words to say nothing.

    I wrote this post from Pakistan, but we have been back now for a couple of weeks.

    Kianoush: Everything’s ok. It wasn’t sudden really, just didn’t mention it to anyone.
